activate my Microsoft Office xp

    Question

  • I'm trying to activate my Microsoft Office xp by internet & it won't let me.  I've tried by phone, but the activation wizard won't give me a phone number.  Can I have a phone number?

  • Apparently, Microsoft is unhappy with all of the people happy with Office 2003/XP not buying their new unneeded bloated Office product, so they blocked access to the activation servers and additionally hid the activation telephone numbers.

    Call 866-542-3062.  Be ready at the telephone activation window when you call.  The entire call is automated.

    Activated the software no problem.

    Then thank me by email!

    Max - That number only takes me to the Microsoft Store and I can't find anyway to activate anything. The comment below this one gives the right phone number apparently. It worked for me with activating my old (paid for) copy of Office XP.

    I'd thank you by email but I can't find your email address. So...thanks! Worked like a charm. :-)
